Los Angeles based artist Nicholas Zhu presents a new collection of arrangements as a mixtape

Planet Mu sub-label Knives has announced a new release by US designer and producer Nicholas Zhu, aka bod. Limpid Fear [清澈恐惧], available soon as a cassette, was written between 2017 and 2018 as “a proposal to redeem and present a new clarity in the psychological struggle for self-confrontation”. The artist continues, “Here, for myself, I was trying to avoid the archetypal condition of art and philosophy to explore or investigate. This may be a narrative but it isn't a journey, much less a quest. There weren't questions or answers. There is discovery! I hope that this is something that works for others in the same way it works for me, that in listening and feeling, dark truths surface and bright revelations cast over them. When the dust cleared I could see clearly, but I'm still not sure what to make of it.”

Limpid Fear [清澈恐惧] is released by Knives on 17 August and available to pre-order now
